He's trying so hard. He puts in 10 times the effort that Glenn Beck does, and gets less than half the (unintentional) comic firepower - to wit:

(and yes, I already know about his beyond-pathetic follow-up where he desperately claims that his mistake was really just a genius plan to teach liberal bloggers a lesson)

Also, regarding the Tim Hawkins stuff, um, the government doesn't take "all"/"everything" I make. And I like his line about how "the government" can "make the Founding Fathers roll over in their grave" - weren't the Founding Fathers some sort of accomplices in creating our gummint (Yeah, I know, I know - they wanted it small enough to drown in a bathtub)?

These two guys have made something that can function as a pretty sly riposte to Carrot Top-meet-Ayn Rand, and their budget was clearly much smaller:

(Warning: 2nd vid has some swearing; would not be suitable for a Disney cruise, unlike the "comic" stylings of Tim Hardin)

I often wonder what the point of making such satirical spoofs is. Honestly, if your pro-administration you'll dismiss it without watching it again; it wouldn't cause any rational person to change their views on politics. If you're anti-administration you may, at the most, have a chuckle about it, but it in no way makes you think about why you are against government bailouts/takeovers, an increasing national debt, and health care reform. It's utterly pointless. (I understand somebody will probably point out the hypocrisy of my commenting on it; I'm ok with that).

Have you heard that stupid song by Led Zeppelin? "There's a lady who knows all that glitters is gold and she's buying a stairway to heaven." Isn't that ridiculous? Everyone knows there's no such thing as a stairway to heaven! Har, har!

Yeah, hilarious, Yersinia. You should team up with Hawkins. You guys would KILL on the next Disney comedy cruise!
